Shawn Hansen, Executive Director of The Outreach Program of Brainerd Lakes Area joined us as their organization hit a major milestone with their service this week.

But, Hansen first tells us what things have been like for the holiday season.

Hansen then explains the milestone achieved.

Hansen went on to say how the milestone is truly incredible as the program is entirely funded by private donations, and that 100 percent of the packed meals are currently staying within 60-80 miles throughout the Brainerd Lakes Area.

There are lots of volunteers that also are crucial to The Outreach Program running, one of which was honored this week.

The work is far from over, and Hansen gives us a quick look ahead at 2021 and some events already planned to help The Outreach Program.

Both the Frozen Fore and the Off the Rails Market are scheduled for February 21st. Hansen finished up with this message.
